Renowned Egg Donation and Surrogacy Expert, Nazca Fontes, Launches Blog,

Platform to Provide Ongoing Perspective of Industry Veteran and Forum for Open Discussion of Infertility and Related Topics

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Nazca Fontes, biologist and one of the country's foremost experts on egg donation, surrogacy and the infertility industry, is launching today. The blog will provide a forum where Fontes can lend her knowledge and opinion on the latest news, issues and trends in the rapidly evolving infertility industry, as well as a platform for open discussion by intended parents, egg donors, gestational surrogates and other industry professionals.

From hot issues like the global rise in reproductive tourism or the potential for a mandatory U.S. donor registry to tips for handling the emotional and practical complexities of the journey, Fontes will leverage her extensive personal and professional experience to share her understanding of, and perspectives on, what really matters in the fertility industry. At the same time, will provide a platform for current and prospective intended parents, egg donors and gestational surrogates to connect and discuss a broad spectrum of topics. Fontes will also tap leading industry colleagues to share their knowledge and insight.

"As both an egg donor and the founder of an agency specializing in assisted reproduction, I've learned that two key priorities for intended parents, egg donors and surrogates alike are access to information and an opportunity to connect with others who share a common experience," said Fontes. "I'm excited to launch to provide my perspective on issues facing the infertility industry while also opening a dialogue with, and between, those directly affected by these issues."

About Nazca Fontes

As a biologist, former egg donor and founder and president of one of the oldest and most established egg donation and surrogacy agencies, ConceiveAbilities, Fontes has nearly two decades of personal and professional experience and has become something of a veteran in this still relatively young industry.

"My experience comes from both working in this field and my own personal journey as an egg donor. I was driven to become an egg donor for two very different reasons," said Fontes. "First and foremost, as I believe all egg donors do, I felt drawn to the idea of doing something that could literally change lives. My other driver, odd as it may sound, was really a scientific curiosity that came from working in the industry as a biologist. My experience gave me a perspective that I truly couldn't have had without it."

Given Fontes' unique combination of personal and professional experience, she is frequently a sought-after speaker at industry forums and regularly sponsors Connecting with Hope, a support group in Chicago for individuals using egg donors and/or surrogates. Fontes is also sought after by U.S. and international media outlets to provide comment and perspective, most recently in the Chicago Tribune, BBC's Newshour and the HuffingtonPost.
